Residents of communities surrounding the Gaza Strip will petition the High Court on Monday in an effort to reach a ruling which will require the government to protect and shield the region from threats posed by Palestinian terrorists.

According to the residents, they were informed that there is "no chance" that the defense establishment will deploy the Iron Dome missile defense system in their communities in the coming years.

Four of the regional authorities participating in the petition will demand the court issue an order which will hold the government accountable to protect the communities by deploying Iron Dome or by completing the construction of an additional 2,500 reinforced rooms within homes in the threatened region.
